PE and Sport Premium
Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
For 2022-23 Yardley Primary School received £21019 for our PE and Sport premium grant.
The amount was spent in full to contribute to covering the costs of the part-time specialist sports coach (who works 3 and half days a week), and football, netball and dance coaches who teach the after-school clubs.
The school offers 8 after school sports activities, fully funded by the school, with no cost to parents.
Pupils from Years 1 to 6 have the opportunity to attend at least one club a week. Sometimes, if clubs are oversubscribed then pupil will take part in the club for half the school year and then another set of children from the same year group will have the opportunity to take part.
Our high commitment to and participation in inter school sports competitions can be evidenced by the results our teams and individuals achieve.

For the school year 2022-23 we were awarded the Gold Schools Games Mark.
In 2022-23 Swimming took place for Year 5 and Year 6 pupils. They follow and intensive 2 week program where they swim for an hour every day. Last year 90% of year 6 pupils could swim at least 25metres, using a range of strokes effectively and perform self-rescue in different situations.
We also run an in-school KS2 cross country around the school grounds each year, in year football and rounders competitions and our annual Year 6 Tug-of-War competition.
Sustainability is provided by class teachers co-teaching with a specialist sports coach during the lesson time to improve their own teaching of gymnastics, athletics, dance and a range of sports. The PE timetable is rotated termly so that all children receive access to being taught by the specialist coach throughout the year.
